Show & Tell: A Quilt for a Cause

By Leonied
And just like that it's Thursday again!
Show & Tell Thursday's
Last year I was lucky enough to meet Deb and I'm sure you've all heard of her.  No doubt you've also recently read about the Blessing Deb project.  A week or two ago the call was put out to donate items for an auction.

After a lot of um-ing and ah-ing I decided to make up a quilt to contribute.

I dreamt up the design (literally - I woke up with the pictures and numbers in my head at 4am one morning!) and got on with making it over the weekend.

It wasn't without it's challenges - needle failures, backing failures, etc -   but... despite the hiccups, the top came together, my walking foot got a good workout with the straight-line quilting,  binding sewn on, and now it's done!

Next week it will be auctioned.  Check out the details on the Facebook page, and if you like it, please bid on it!  I hope it goes to a home that will love it as much as we do : )

Looking forward to seeing your makings and creatings!
